Around every corner of the Indoor & Outdoor Flea Markets during this Bluegrass Festival Weekend you’ll find costumed stilt walkers, clowns, balloon artists and real rodeo cowboys! Plan on being entertained no matter where you turn and don’t forget to have your picture taken with one or all of these performers. “The Cowboys are traveling on the SEBRA Rodeo Circuit, and they just love to have their picture taken!” said Jake Barker, local coordinator of SEBRA events. “It’s way more fun than being bucked off a bull!”

The only way to top off all that excitement is with some fantastic food. Outside of other delicious offerings, Caesar Creek Flea Market is well known for its tasty broasted chicken. “People come from all over just for our chicken. It’s not uncommon for people to leave at the end of the day with an armload of carryout from Brutus’ Broasted Chicken, located in Aisle 5 of the Indoor Market”, said Janet Burton, General Manager of the Flea Market. Outside you’ll find sizzlin’ steak sandwiches grilled over an open-flame and smothered with onions and peppers…mmm mmm good! Other favorites include the Bourbon Chicken, grilled hot dogs, beer batter onion rings, ice cream sundaes for the sweet-tooth and lots more. We guarantee you won’t go hungry!

Flea Market Vendors come from miles around every weekend throughout the year to buy, sell and barter everything from everyday items to rare, one-of-a-kind treasures and antiques.
